    I'm sure they get a portion of their funds from stolen accounts, but not the larger portion. Like @Gaea said, players sell them gold; for real money (at a low rate), or bulk materials, and then they turn around and sell the same gold to other players for real money (at a higher rate). The important thing to take note of here is this would not be going on if players weren't selling or buying gold. So, a large percentage of the blame can be centered on those players who do these things, whomever they may be. ☺

    Yup, i remember we used to have one bot in Dunbarton Town Square ch1 on Alexina. Now we have 2 bots.... One is at Town Square and the other is between mailbox and bank. If this keeps up we will have even more bots later...

    @Harukari Same, i blacklist and move on. But it's annoying because it fills up my friend list too fast. That's my blacklist at this moment. I don't even always blacklist them and i already got this huge list.... -_-

    @Greta

    I block one or two every time I log in, but knowing they have a short life span (between creation and ban), I remove them a few days later. ☺

    Just encourage Nexon to keep censor all those website names then the problem will be solved.

    @Greta Yeah I sometimes forget to remove them and my list gets super full xD
    On the bright side at least they only show up in dunby and sometimes tir, I usually don't stay around in dunby/tir often(If I do it's not on the market channel)
    I've never seen them in Belvast, not on Ruairi/Tarlach, at least.

    I have seen bot's personal shops in Belvast, however.

    @Greta yeah, i don't think you'll ever see spam-bots anywhere but Dunbarton. It would require too much effort for them to go to Belvast. Though I don't think new players can actually continent warp until they've done the first set of tutorials anyway. Brand new players off the soul stream cannot join parties so I'm assuming that to be the case also.

    Theres alot of bots appearing in Alexina Tir Ch1, ive had like 6 bots banned already lol
    and, honestly why would there be bots in tir, wouldnt that discourage new players from playing the game when they see those bots roaming around?

    @Hardmuscle Yeah there are players who have basically turned this into a supplementary job. Bots can't bot for gold anymore. But players can farm for them.

    This is my opinion, and im in no way of telling the gms how to do their jobs. But I think Gms should be posted in towns when they are invisible, for example GM Nkeona would be in tir watching for bots or other things; or we should have more people reporting them often.

    @Rocis Sometimes they do, there is a GM hide function in their control panel. But yeah they should be posted more often, having the game running on a second computer at their station while they do their other work checking periodically.

    @Rocis Technically yes and I'm not saying that they don't, they just don't do it all the time due to reasons that we are not aware of. Another important responsibility a GM has above everything else is system stability and reporting any issues to their tech team. They also have to answer and resolve TONS and TONS of tickets from players. Customer service consumes their entire day.

    That's why reporting bots and chatting with GM's helps. We have bring it to their attention.

    I feel like it's our responsibility too.

    @Gaea Good point, I guess I've been helping them for the pass two days, going back and forth to tir and dunby and reporting the bots. I was also told in live chat that the in game report system might be fixed by the next server maintenance which is good I think.

    OMG!! that would be soooooo great! It will make reporting the bots so much easier.

    @Ktty Yup, it would be nice if there was live gm chat in game, Like in World of Warcraft, but that might be hard to keep up with.

    Might be hard to code too considering the age of the game engine. But we can always dream I suppose.

    @Ktty I guess, but I dont see how hard it would be to code it, cant they just use the chat system that we have now, but put a button on the bottom of the chat saying GM?
    I made a photoshop of my chat, and added a button that says gm on it c:
